  • LAC Shooting Guard #14
    Terance Mann shot 10-of-14 from the field and 3-of-3 from the foul line in Sunday’s 116-105 loss to the Rockets, scoring 24 points with six rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.
    Mann and P.J. Tucker were the lone “regular” starters in the rotation for Sunday’s game, and the latter has only started recently due to Kawhi Leonard (knee) being sidelined. Mann had one of his best offensive games of the season, surpassing the 20-point mark for the third time. More valuable to the Clippers than fantasy managers, he finishes this season ranked outside the top 200 in 8- and 9-cat formats. As for Tucker, he only played eight minutes on Sunday, and Leonard’s availability will dictate his minutes during the postseason. The Clippers host Dallas in Game 1 of their series on Sunday.
  • IND Power Forward #1
    Obi Toppin tallied 15 points (6-of-8 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), four rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes in Tuesday’s 133-128 loss to the Celtics.
    The Pacers reserves scored 30 points in Game 1, enjoying a 17-point advantage in that category. Toppin and T.J. McConnell (13/3/4/1 in 25 minutes) were responsible for 28 of those 30 points, but it wasn’t enough to help the Pacers hold onto Game 1. Getting outscored by a 24-9 margin at the foul line and committing 21 turnovers were the issues for the Pacers, who had a three-point lead with 46.1 seconds remaining in regulation. A Jaylen Brown 3-pointer with six seconds remaining forced overtime, with Boston taking a 1-0 series lead. Game 2 is on Thursday night, and this is another series in which Toppin and McConnell will have an advantage.
  • IND Power Forward #43
    Pascal Siakam shot 12-of-23 from the field in Tuesday’s 133-128 overtime loss to Boston, scoring 24 points with 12 rebounds, seven assists, and one steal in 42 minutes.
    In the final games of the Pacers’ second-round series win over New York, Siakam did most of his damage in the mid-range and restricted areas, which was also the case on Tuesday. He missed both 3-point attempts and did not attempt a free throw. In addition to the turnovers, of which Indiana had 21, the charity stripe is where the Pacers lost Game 1, as Boston outscored them by a 24-9 margin. Siakam isn’t elite at getting to the line, as he averaged 4.2 attempts per game with the Pacers during the regular season (and 4.0 per game against New York). But he and the Pacers will have to do a better job of getting those opportunities to score when the clock is stopped, as Boston leads all playoff teams in free throws made differential (+5.8). Indiana is dead last at minus-6.0.
  • IND Point Guard #0
    Tyrese Haliburton shot 8-of-18 from the field and 3-of-3 from the foul line in Tuesday’s 133-128 overtime loss to the Celtics, amassing 25 points, three rebounds, 10 assists, three steals, one block, and six 3-pointers in 40 minutes.
    After hitting six 3-pointers in Indiana’s Game 7 win over the Knicks, Haliburton hit six more in the Eastern Conference Finals opener. However, turnovers and a minus-15 margin at the foul line proved costly for the Pacers. Haliburton was only responsible for three of the team’s 21 turnovers, but many of the team’s miscues were unforced. While Indiana can take solace in having a chance to win Game 1 against a well-rested opponent, the truth is that they let this one get away. Haliburton and the Pacers will look to grab home-court advantage in Game 2 on Thursday.
  • IND Center #33
    Myles Turner played 39 minutes in Tuesday’s 133-128 overtime loss to Boston, accumulating 23 points (9-of-13 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), 10 rebounds, four assists, two blocks, and three 3-pointers.
    Turner came out scalding hot in Tuesday’s Game 1, shooting 7-of-10 from the field and scoring 18 points in the first half. He went quiet in the second half and overtime, only attempting three shots while most of the offense ran through Tyrese Haliburton and Pascal Siakam. With Kristaps Porzingis unlikely to return before Game 4 on Monday, Turner is well-positioned to make some things happen offensively. However, he has to be consistently aggressive for that to be the case. Game 2 is on Thursday night in Boston.
  • BOS Small Forward #7
    Jaylen Brown logged 44 minutes in Tuesday’s 133-128 overtime win over Indiana, finishing with 26 points (10-of-20 FGs, 5-of-8 FTs), seven rebounds, five assists, three steals, one block, and one 3-pointer.
    After scoring just 11 points in Boston’s series-clinching win over Cleveland on May 15, Brown got his Eastern Conference Finals off to a good start. The Celtics star has scored 26 points or more in three of the team’s last four games, shooting 50% or better in each. What also has DFS players pleased is the production in other categories, most notably the assists, steals, and blocks. While Brown was responsible for seven assists in that Game 5 victory over Cleveland, the four “stocks” are the most in a game for him this postseason. Boston will need similar efforts against the Pacers, who also possess a potent offensive attack.
  • BOS Point Guard #4
    Jrue Holiday played 48 minutes in Tuesday’s 133-128 overtime win over Indiana, amassing 28 points (10-of-16 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), seven rebounds, eight assists, three steals, and four 3-pointers.
    Holiday has seemingly found his groove after struggling to begin this postseason. He’s shot 54.5% or better in each of Boston’s last four games, and the 28 points scored in Tuesday’s Game 1 were a postseason high. Holiday was also effective as a distributor and rebounder, with five of his seven boards coming on the offensive end of the floor. With Derrick White (15/6/9/2/1 with three 3-pointers) shooting 5-of-13 from the field, Holiday scoring as efficiently as he did gave the Celtics a welcome boost. Game 2 is on Thursday night.
  • BOS Small Forward #0
    Jayson Tatum shot 12-of-26 from the field and 10-of-12 from the foul line in Tuesday’s 133-128 overtime win over the Pacers, scoring 36 points with 12 rebounds, four assists, three steals, and two 3-pointers in 45 minutes.
    Tatum led all scorers with 36 points, and his 3-pointer with a little over 42 seconds remaining in overtime gave Boston a four-point lead. From there, the Celtics did what they needed to do to sew up Game 1. Tatum shot 2-of-8 from three but was considerably more efficient inside the arc. Both teams had some miscues down the stretch, with Boston benefitting from Indiana’s fourth-quarter errors to force overtime. Tatum and the Celtics will look to play a cleaner game on Thursday when the teams reconvene for Game 2.
  • BOS Power Forward #8
    According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Kristaps Porzingis (right soleus strain) could return to action as soon as Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
    Porzingis has been sidelined since straining the soleus muscle in his right calf on April 30 against the Heat. While he will not play in the first two games of the Eastern Conference Finals, there’s optimism that the 7-foot-3 big man will play at some point. According to Wojnarowski, that could be as soon as Game 4 in Indianapolis (May 27). Al Horford will start until Porzingis is cleared to play.
  • MIN Point Guard #10
    Mike Conley (left soleus strain) is questionable for Wednesday’s game against the Mavericks.
    Questionable for Wednesday’s series opener, Conley played in Games 6 and 7 of Minnesota’s second-round series against Denver despite having that tag. Due to the soleus strain, the veteran point guard missed Game 5 of that series. Given the trend, DFS players and bettors should expect to see Conley on the court on Wednesday. Nickeil Alexander-Walker is the most likely choice to fill the void if he cannot play.
  • DAL Point Guard #77
    Luka Doncic (left ankle soreness, right knee sprain) is probable for Wednesday’s game against the Timberwolves.
    Despite ankle and knee injuries, Doncic has not missed a game this postseason. That trend should continue for Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals on Wednesday, which would be good for DFS players who want to slot him into their lineups. In two games against Minnesota during the regular season, Doncic averaged 36.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, 10.5 assists, 1.5 steals, 3.5 3-pointers, and 5.5 turnovers.
